Blog Day 4

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

Looking back to when I first started Spark people diet. I ate vegetables or salad for breakfast with protein. I used to make a big batch of soup in the winter and have mixed salads in the summer.
So my aim is to have vegetables more often for breakfast again. But not every day.

Today I ate Mediterranean food. I had warm goats cheese salad with bulgar wheat and pesto.
I started with a bed of green lettuce (not iceberg). Added diced soft goats cheese sprinkled on top. Re-heated my Mediterranean mixed vegetables of Aubergine, courgette, red, yellow, orange sweet peppers (Capsicums) ,shallots a
nd red onions cooked in Extra virgin olive oil. Poured it over the salad and cheese. Then added the bulgar with home made pesto mixed in. Here it is and its on a 9 inch plate.

Totally delicious and sustaining. I also had a glass of my lime and water followed by a cup of 1% milk mocha, it kept me going in the garden till lunchtime without a snack in between.

Now to see if it works for my weight loss! LOL!

It was a lovely warm sunny day again and I did gardening all day. Adrian cooked lunch, but it was not ready till 2.30om. I started work at 10.30pm. Half an hour lunch.

We are expecting rain tomorrow and we do need it! The garden is very dry.

Hugs Ellen

    That salad is making me hungry. It's 11:00 p.m. here. I'm not supposed to be hungry now...lol
    What a healthy day you've had, and what I wouldn't give to be able to work in my garden. I've got 3 feet of snow sitting on mine so I won't have to water it for a while.
    You're doing great!!!

    That breakfast looked like a great meal. I love most vegetables but when i was in England few of those were available to us up North. I love the Zucchini I use it as bread in sandwiches, I very rarely eat bread since I was suppose to be Gluten intolerant when i was on that allergy diet I was down to 165 my goal to get to again,.I am still struggling HUGS Pat in Maine.

    You can do it so can I we just have to emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I sometimes add spinach and onions to my scrambled eggs or just some fried mushrooms. Used to love having red bell pepper but that out for me now since I can't eat night shade veggies.

    I think sometimes we have to change things around, like you are doing, to keep up our interests so we don't fall off the track. emoticon

    Gee Ellen, you eat so very healthy. I wouldn't fancy vegetables for breakfast ... a decent fry-up, yes... woops, sorry. I save that for when I'm on vacation, lol.

    Keep up the good work. You are an inspiration, girlfriend! emoticon

    Hot week here today too and now they say it's going to be really hot next week as well.
